Genetics, aging and other factors can impact the fatty deposits on your neck and under your chin. These types of fat accumulation are difficult to reduce as they do not respond to diet or exercise. If you want to slim your neck or define your chin, neck liposuction may be the best option. Dr. Munique Maia and our team at Maia Plastic Surgery offer neck liposuction at our medical center in the greater Washington, DC, metro area.
Neck liposuction surgery is used to remove excess fat from the neck that creates an undesirable thickness or shape to the neck and chin. This is often a genetic condition and may have little to do with body weight. Some people carry extra fatty tissue under their chin or on their neck, which can cause a lack of definition of the chin and neck, especially from the profile. Neck liposuction can remove the excess fatty tissue to reshape and contour the neck and chin.
Is Cosmetic Neck Reshaping Right for You?
Good candidates for neck liposuction are those who still have good skin laxity on the neck. Liposuction only removes fat under the skin, it does not remove excess skin or tighten the neck. Older adults who have fatty tissue and sagging skin may need a neck lift with liposuction to obtain the desired results. Dr. Maia can recommend the right procedure to slim the neck and define the chin if you have excess tissue or fat you want removed in the neck area.
A slim, shapely neck helps improve the definition of your chin and jawline. If you would like to learn more about neck liposuction, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery.
